Get your mind out of the gutter. Kirby Smart’s talking about offensive linemen.
“Size doesn’t excite me,” Smart said when asked about the prospects of having Ben Cleveland and Isaiah Wilson on one side of the offensive line. “What’s inside that helmet does. You know, the first time I saw Isaiah Wynn I didn’t exactly get excited, but I was pretty disappointed when he left. So it’s not a matter of how they look all the time. It’s more about how they play.”
Yeah, yeah, I get all that. But it’s not like Wynn was an underfed midget, either. He was a healthy 6-2, 313. A little short for the position, but that’s all.
Pittman is recruiting monsters for the offensive line. When the day comes that stops, I’ll buy into the lack of excitement point of view. For now, it’s nothing but this month’s motivational stone.
